CAUSEBOX Review Summer 2019

CAUSEBOX is a quarterly curation of socially conscious lifestyle products for women. Every box is filled with products that have a story and make a difference! Inside of CAUSEBOX you’ll find the best jewelry, homewares, skincare products, accessories and more each season. And they tell you the stories behind each brand. Many of the products are exclusive CAUSEBOX collaborations that you can’t get anywhere else! They kindly sent us this box for review.

I received my very first CAUSEBOX last season and I was absolutely thrilled with everything included in the box. CAUSEBOX is one of those subscriptions that has been on my radar for a while and now that I’ve had the chance to review two boxes I am wondering how on earth it took me so long to get this gorgeous box in my hands. It’s pretty darn amazing and it’s a box that makes a difference.

Here’s a closer look at the items we received in the Summer 2019 CAUSEBOX….

Altru Good Straw Tote ($50)

This gorgeous handmade straw tote has reinforced, double-wrapped handles, white striping, a removable powder blue tassel — perfect for farmer’s markets and brunch dates! Through this product Altru will donate to charitable efforts that protect and preserve our marine ecosystems!

This gorgeous little straw tote is giving me all the feels. Well, I shouldn’t call it small. I would consider this a medium-size tote and I absolutely love it. The pretty blue tassels are removable and the tote itself is the perfect size for every-day use.

Tribe Alive Caftan Coverup ($118)

Handwoven by artisans in Jaipur, India, this caftan coverup is made from high-quality breathable cotton and is designed to fit and flatter all body types. Experience the feel and carefully crafted details for yourself! Annual members choose their style.

Every single product I have ever received from Tribe Alive I have absolutely LOVED and this coverup is no exception. It was available in a few different colors and while I would have preferred the blue, I will still get use out of this one. In the product booklet they have it styled 4 ways. My favorite is to wrap it around and tie it in the front so it looks like a tube-style dress… stinkin’ cute for the beach!

Quagga Green Wet Swim Pouch ($25)

This beautiful, oversize bag has a water-resistant interior lining and zipper which makes it perfect for wet bathing suits or sweaty workout clothes. It’s the ideal accessory for an active summer and it is made sustainably out of recycled plastic!

This little pouch was available in two different colors and I am loving the blue. This is the perfect accessory for my new straw tote or my beach bag. It is made from recycled polyester which is an added bonus.

Hanalei Aloe Gel or Powder Face Cleanser ($35)

Cruelty-free, paraben-free, phthalate-free, and sulfate-free products from Hawaii-based Hanalei Skincare — Annual Members get to choose between the Island Aloe Gel or the Papaya Enzyme Powder Face Cleanser! (note: Cleanser contains Marine Collagen, and is not vegan)

I vaguely remember receiving this brand before but for the life of me I can’t remember which product I received. This time I get to test out the Aloe Gel and I am very happy to have received it. This is already in my beach bag. Even though I try to stay out of the sun I still like to have a quality aloe gel on hand just in case.

Reduce Everyday Insulated Tumbler ($12.99)

An insulated tumbler that’s perfect for picnics, beach days, or just keeping drinks cool around the house! It comes with a lid, and keeps drinks either hot or cold — it’s a perfectly reusable companion that helps reduce the waste created by single use plastic or paper cups!

I love, love, love this tumbler and it really is the perfect addition to a beach-inspired box if you think about it. This is a must-have for a day at the beach or a day beside the pool. It is vacuum insulated so it stays colder way longer and it is 100% recyclable stainless steel. I will use it for lemon water during the summer and tea during the Fall & Winter.

All Good Reef Safe Sport Sunscreen ($15.99)

A full-size tube of reef friendly, mineral based sunscreen from All Good. This natural sunscreen doesn’t compromise, it’s zinc-based, but it’s easy to rub in, and it’s perfect for all of your summer adventures!

I recently received this in another box but I am more than happy to receive it a second time. Now I have one for the bathroom cupboard and one for my beach bag. I like that it is zinc-based and reef safe.

Banded Scrunchie 3-Pack ($10)

A set of three scrunchies from Banded in an exclusive-for-CAUSEBOX colorway. For every product sold, Banded donates three meals to those in need!

Scrunchies are a must-have for any beach bag. My hair is ridiculously long right now so I’ve gotten in the habit of having hair ties with me at all times. I have them in all my bags, in my desk drawers and in my car. These ones are made of a soft-knit jersey that’s easy to wear and really comfy.

Antra Svarcs Art Print ($10)

An exclusive art print by Australian artist, Antra Švarcs, which doubles as a postcard! Comes in one of two styles — sand or sea!

Lastly we have our Summer print. I use these prints as an excuse to switch up my office decor every season. Super cute in a frame or on a cork board.

CAUSEBOX Review Summer 2019 – Final Thoughts

The Summer 2019 CAUSEBOX is the ultimate beach box. It’s packed full of summer essentials all of which I will get a ton of use out of. You could literally just pack every item (aside from the art print) in your new tote and you are good to go for a day at the beach or pool. I have a cute new tote to carry all my summer goodies in, a beach cover-up, sunscreen and aloe for my skin, a pouch for my bikini, a reusable tumbler for my water and some scrunchies to keep my hair out of your face. The only thing missing is a good book and a few snacks. The Summer CAUSEBOX is pretty darn awesome and SO appropriate for the Summer season.
